The Space

Why stay in a hotel when you can enjoy your stay the fullest in Brooklyn, yet for much less money!


This house is located the trendy hood called Brooklyn Lefferts Garden. This room is part of the house that's based in multi-ethnic, friendly, safe neighborhood. Cafes and restaurants reflect various backgrounds. A yoga center just opened only two blocks away. I can also take you or show where to go for a delightful hang out spots or bars with Jazz concerts and hilarious comedy shows.

Ask for the sublet special if you are interested in staying for a month or two!

Please note that this not a hotel room with a 24 hours service which is why it's so so so much cheaper, and much more laid back than hotels. Also, the room is in a house that was built in the 1920s so while you can find so many of Brooklyn's characters in it, it's not really shiny. In addition, the pictures are taken by a professional Airbnb photographer. I love those photos but some guests commented that Airbnb photos didn't convey the real look of the room. In any case, pictures are taken for the same room, I assure you. Lastly, please consider picking up after yourselves (towels, bath stuff, bathroom mat, and wash your plates/pots after cooking). At times, guests think that the house is untidy or dirty when it's actually another guest who decided to leave things unwashed... etc. :). In addition, please be advised that when you don't clean after yourself in the kitchen or bathroom, or when you eat in your bedroom that there may be a chance that you see a mouse or roach. Thanks for reading.

Enjoy your city in the great New York City!!!

Guest Access

Frontyard, livingroom, kitchen, and bathroom.

Interaction with Guests

As much as guests want. I may or may not be present during the stay but if I am not, someone else should be at home to help you when you need.

The Neighborhood

I love that my neighborhood is diverse, fun, not uptight, open, and I mostly love that I can get anything anytime of the day or night. I love that there are so many cafes and restaurants. I love that there are museums, parks, free concerts almost all summer long.

Getting around

Public transportation are about 5 minutes away, and buses are only 30 steps away from my house. Parking is free although you have to abide by the two days cleaning for each side of the street from 9-11 in the morning.

To get from airport, take a taxi for $30-$40, or take the bus or subway for less than $10 total per passenger.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Natasha is very kind and helpfull. I totally recommend this place and I will stay here the next time I arrive in NY. The area is nice as well. I stayed there for one week and no problem at all. Actually I arrived 2 hours late but Natasha were just happy to see me. Thanks for all.

  • Natasha (email hidden) who was always available and timely with my requests (fresh towel, installing the AC unit). I stayed in this room for three weeks and had no issues whatsoever. The room is no frills and is an older building but it was always clean and suited my needs. Lots of closet space and quiet (just need to get used to hearing the church bells rings). Quick access to grocery stores, the 2, 5 train, laundromat and an amazing bakery. Affordable!

  • The appartment was really nice with a well-equiped kitchen (even with for the guests!). The room I was living in was perfect for one person. The bed was really comfortable.

    The appartment is close to a metro station with connections straight to the heart of Manhattan.

    Natasha was really helpful. I would totally stay (email hidden).
